CommentFairy-wrens are my favourite bird and I was able to snap this cutie in some low bushes near Lighthouse Beach in Ballina NSW. I was pleased that I was able to take the shot at the bird’s eyelevel, and to capture it in full song with its face towards the afternoon sun. The detail in the whiskers around its beak is clear, against a nice blurred background.
